Just ordered these from End clothing. Roll on the Fedex van arriving on monday.
I've tried several times in the past emailing Superdenim with no success,so your not alone with not getting a reply.
I guess they do not want our trade!
Those are nice, I was looking at them myself!
Superdenim and their Marrkt spin off have possibly the worst customer service of any shop in the U.K. I purchased a cabourn shirt form them and on of the press studs fell off within a day of wearing. Luckily my mother is a professional dressmaker and managed to fix it with a minimum of fuss but I sent them an email anyway and still 6 months later I have not had a reply. It is much better to use the "live chat" function on their site.

First, like I mentioned I purchased a pair of Grasmere boot. I had Shoe Healer put on micro soles. Rich and the Michelle are a pleasure to deal with - as you all know. I never had the 4497 last before and when I tried them on the were quite tight across the instep. So much so that I put them up for sale on eBay. There were no takers. So I said the heck with it - I used a heavy pair of wool socks and did a 4 mile hike in 5 inches of fresh snow. Then I shoveled for a couple of hours. The boots broke in great! They are quite light and became extremely comfortable . And the leather is near impervious to water and snow (though there is a coat of Filson boot oil on them). The micro sole worked great in snow - better than my Dainite soles and they don’t track in snow like lug soles. I am so glad that no one bought them when I had them up for bid. A superior boot! I think we will be friends for a long time....
BTW - I have a pair of Trickers Burtons, Expresso color, UK9 double leather soles with box and bags with less that 30 wears. If any one is interested.
similar experience here... I received my Stow boots on a double leather sole on friday. First impression was great (I have quite low feet). Put them on to walk around in the house for a short time. After about 15 minutes they felt very narrow in the heels, and I thought they might give me serious blisters.
So this morning I put them on and went to the grocery store, after that had a coffee at my local Star****, all in all maybe 2 hours on my feet.
What can I say? They really softened up and now I'm ready to take them out to the bar tonight.
Very good boots.
Yes, I was surprise how well and easily they broke in! And don't let any one throw up on your new boots! ; )
Hey about to place an order, but wanted to confirm my feelings on sizing and hope you guys can confirm my thoughts.
In Alden Hampton last I wear US 10
In Barrie last boot i wear a US 9 1/2
In most tennis shoes (Nike, Asics, etc) i wear a US 10 1/2
If I'm getting a shoe built on the Country 4444 last I should go with a UK 8 1/2 or UK 9?
Any input would be helpful just want to solidify my decision.
Thanks for the help in advanced guys much appreciated.
I'm a Barrie last US10 and the UK9 works good for me in the 5 fitting. The UK 8 1/2 should be good for you, though I could have gone to a UK 9 1/2 - I have wide feet.
I take 10.5US Barrie and 9.5UK on 4444/4497.
The 4444 is probably going to be wide enough for you in 8.5UK but the question is the length.
I take a 9UK on the 4497, 9 on Barrie longwings, 9.5 on Barrie boots
the 4497 has generous width, but i need the 9UK for the length
Does anyone know that whether the trickers for presents boots are 4444 or 3397?
